Stix, Baer & Fuller was a department store chain located here in STL MO that operated from 1892 until they finally went under in 1984. I have fond memories of going to the one in South County mall during my childhood, and especially remember their amazing toy department! Today I have the first in a two-part post featuring highlights from their 1960 xmas toy catalog that is seriously jam packed with outstanding kid stuff, not to mention dazzling store mascot Mr. Wish "painting an exciting scene of surprises shiny and new!" Hey, I'll take the totally off-model Quick Draw McGraw and Huckleberry Hound stuffed characters, as well as the Screwball board game, Nudnik Stationary set, and Toy Tote Bag! I love the Marybel doll who comes with a set of crutches and casts for her poor lil busted limbs-- aw! PART TWO coming up next, and yeah it's still Xmas in July here at AEET, for a few more posts anyway!
